A Panel Discussion on ‘Technology propelling women’s foray into business’ was organized by the World Trade Centre (WTC) Mumbai and All India Association of Industries (AIAI) on 19 January 2017

The high powered discussion panel included Saroja Sirisena, Consul General, Sri Lanka; Samina Naz, Deputy High Commissioner, Bangladesh; Ulrika Sundberg, Consul General, Sweden; Rosimar da Silva Suzano, Consul General, Brazil and Jennifer A Larson, Deputy Principal Officer of the US Consulate, besides Rupa Naik, Director – Projects, WTC Mumbai and Novelist & Activist Tuhin Sinha who represented India.

Saroja Sirisena, Consul General of Sri Lanka said that though most women-led businesses in her country were not tech-driven or tech-intensive, all of them had easy and equal access to technology. More and more Sri Lankan women were now addressing issues using social media. She said Sri Lanka had a great tradition of treating women as equals, longer than most countries, and could achieve a lot without much affirmative action.
